2017 Top Programming Language

Python takes the lead again for being the top programming language. It has been ranked top by IEEE Spectrum. Python continues to be on the higher end trajectory on Google Trends.

Even though on GitHub JavaScript leads the way and Python follows up on number second; I believe Python is still the lead as anyone and everyone on web somehow works with JavaScript.

When comparing to Google Trends Python leads in Web Search as well as on YouTube videos search. There are more people searching for Python then any other programming language.

If you are planning to create a tutorial for YouTube and don’t know which programming language to choose, I would suggest to go with Python.
Python is also leading the way in Machine Learning and Neural Network Learning languages. Everyone likes to throw in the words like Big Data, AI, and machine Learning, but what they all have in common is Python; where majority of the developers or API documentation is being written in Python.

Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.

Qlik Sense Hitchhiker

I just started to hitchhike my way through Qlik Sense Desktop Tutorial's.

I started off with Beginning with the Basics and I am in the middle of Building an App. I hope to get the basics out of the way so I can build a app with the application data that I am familiar with.

Initially I was lost in Qlik Sense Getting Started, as I started off with partner portal, from there to community, and then to dev section. Going through getting started or sales videos was just not my kind of thing. Try avoiding watching videos late at night as some would defineately try to put you to sleep. After all that, I was finally able to skip to the Tutorial section and that's where I felt like now we are getting started.

Plain old, Hello World kind of tutorial that I appreciate in web solutions or programming languages or software's, with step by step instructions and no tangent paths.

I hope to get an understanding of scripting as that is my goal to learn Qlik Sense.

Windows 10 with Hyper-V Role and Vagrant Setup

I have been working on a  Udacity project which uses vagrant box for project implementation. I was trying to resolve an issue with vagrant sync folder.

When using the "vagrant up" on a network based on Microsoft Active Directory with MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com, one can use the rsync default type of "smb" but when using a regular network, one has to use the rsync folder type of "rsync" as the "MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com" does not allow the folders to be synced, even if the folders are in public documents folder on the host machine. The “smb” type will always reject the mapping even though it ask you for the “Windows account” username and password when mounting to guest linux machine.

The reverse was the case when using the non-fully qualified domain Active Directory based network. The active directory has moved away from non-fully qualified domains long ago but I just happen to use one which still has the same old implementation.

[ProductName] folder name in Program Files (x86) AzureQuickstarts.vsix

Strangely, I see a folder name called “[ProductName]” in C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder, and only file that I see in that is “AzureQuickstarts.vsix”.I am not sure at what point did this file got installed. Only guess so far is that it may have been installed with update of Visual Studio.I hope no one else is experiencing such an issue.
